Document Description
The Project consist of the expansion of the existing 160-acre Woodville landfill by 240 acres. Combined, the landfill would encompass an area of approximately 400 acres. The currently unused portion of the existing landfill is vacant, unproductive land, while the proposed Project expansion area is predominantly under agriculturally productive row crops. This proposed Project is designed to anticipate and meet the demands/needs of increases in projected solid waste disposal of the County for the next 55 years. The Project includes the following modifications: • Expand the Woodville landfill northeast of the existing Waste Management Unit-1 (WMU-1) landfill site to two contiguous parcels of approximately 80-acres each located east of the existing landfill. The inclusion of the northeast 160 acres (formerly known as the Hanni property) will be designated as future WMU-3. • Expand the Woodville landfill to a contiguous approximately 70-acre parcel north of the existing landfill. • Relocate the landfill entrance scale and scale house, landfill gas flare, and operations facilities to the northernmost 70-acre parcel designated for operations. • Include the northwest 10-acre parcel (APN 196-03-010, formerly known as the Thompson Property) for the Borrow/ Operations area, and possibly include a staff office (approximately 5,000 square feet) and composting facility (less than 50,000 cubic tons annually). • Utilize approximately 80 unused acres of the currently permitted landfill disposal area in the southern portion of the landfill as WMU-2. • Change operation floor from 282 feet above mean sea level (MSL) to approximately 270 feet above MSL in WMU-2 and WMU-3. • Increase the permitted landfill capacity by approximately 14.0 million cubic yards for an overall capacity of the Woodville landfill to approximately 27.5 million cubic yards. The additional WMUs will be designated Class III landfill units and would extend the anticipated landfill closure date by 55 years (to approximately Year 2074).
